Meanwhile, the downgrade from ‘First World’ status continues unabated…….
“If I have to get one or two months’ supply, I’ll buy it, because our patients need it,” he said. “Hoarding is in the eye of the beholder.”
Some distributors and manufacturers prevent hoarding by allocating drugs based on historical demand. Other pharmacists say it is natural to want to buy more to ensure supply.
“Why did it ever have to get to this point in the first place?” Szandzik asked. “It takes a lot of hours, a lot of labor, a lot of luck to make sure our patients are safe. … And I don’t see it getting better for a while.”
I cannot imagine that this will get any better under the upcoming healthcare ‘overhaul’.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — When police responded to a report of shots fired near San Francisco in February 2011, they wound up in a standoff with 29-year-old Joseph Camilleri and his girlfriend. The two were barricaded inside a home with as many as 20 guns, including 12 illegal assault weapons and thousands of rounds of ammunition.
On Friday, federal and state prosecutors alleged that two of the machine-pistol type weapons were sold to Camilleri by a Sacramento County sheriff’s deputy abusing an exemption in state law that lets peace officers buy weapons that are illegal for civilians to own.
I am shocked..shocked, I say!..to find that California’s amazing web of convoluted and ignorant gun laws are being evaded.
There is so much fail in this article I don’t knwo where to begin…okay, yes I do:
“…exotic weapons including .50 caliber handguns, semi-automatic versions of Uzi-style submachine guns, and pistols that shoot high-velocity ammunition used by the U.S. military.”
If I could do it, I would gather a couple million people to put on their heaviest boots, stand on the fault line, and jump up and down until that state slides into the ocean and Nevada becomes beachfront.
